Indiana Certified Crop Adviser (CCA) of the Year Award_copy

Consider nominating a qualified CCA you employ or know for the “Indiana Certified Crop Adviser of the Year Award”. This award will recognize an individual who has performed superior service for their farmer clients in nutrient management, soil and water management, pest and crop production.
 
The purpose of our Indiana award program is to increase the awareness to other CCAs and their farmer customers that their service providers strive to do their best not only in making economically sound cropping decisions but also ones that are environmentally sound. With increasing farm size, complexity of management options, and increasingly complex regulations, we foresee farmers relying more and more on the advice of specialists who are CCAs.
 
The award will be presented to the winner at the VIRTUAL Indiana Certified Crop Adviser Conference on December 15-16, 2020, in Indianapolis. The nominator, if not the nominee’s employer, that submits the winning application will receive $250 and the CCA winner will receive $1,500. In addition, the winner will be nominated to the International CCA Board for consideration for the International CCA of the Year Award with an honorarium of $2,000.
 
To be considered for the Indiana Certified Crop Adviser Award, a CCA must be certified in Indiana and nominated by a client, a colleague, or the employer of the CCA who knows their qualifications.
 
A nomination form, letter of recommendation form, and tips for completing the nomination are included. Please feel free to copy and distribute to those who might be using services of a CCA.
 
The nomination should include
  • the nomination form,
  • three letters of recommendation - one from the CCA's employer and two from customers. Three letters of recommendation may come from customers if the CCA is self-employed.
Indiana Farm Bureau must receive the nomination by November 30, 2020. If you have any questions, please contact Quentin Rund at 1.800.387.1283.
